Common Eye Injuries
Most eye injuries are caused by intense impact to the facial area including the following:
- Detached Retina – a detached retina causes blurred vision or blindness and usually occurs due to a sudden impact. Sufferers of a detached retina will need corrective surgery in order to treat the problem.
- Anisocoria Eye Injury – this occurs when the pupil sphincter is torn causing a permanent dilated pupil. Sufferers may have vision loss for up to six weeks and will be left with an enlarged pupil causing disfigurement.
- Horner’s Syndrome – this occurs when the nerves that travel from the brain to the eyes and face are damaged. The result is a face disfigurement characterized by dropping eyelids, smaller pupil and a receding eyeball.
- Bell’s palsy – this occurs when the 7th cranial nerve is damaged due to a sudden impact. Bell’s palsy is most often characterized by facial paralysis which can lead to dropping eyelids, drooling, a loss of taste, facial spasms and pain and swelling in the facial area.
What an Eye Injury Can Do
As mentioned in the above instances, an eye injury can negatively impact your entire life. You may suffer from facial disfigurement, pain and blindness. This means you may not be able to work temporarily or permanently and you may need to hire someone to help out around the house. You will most likely need to consult an eye specialist, undergo surgeries, x-rays and MRI’s and take medication. All of these bills can add up to not only emotional stress but financial stress as well. It is important that you speak to a personal injury lawyer about getting the financial compensation you deserve during this difficult time.
